Stourbridge have been cleared to use Worcester Warriors' pair Matt Kvesic and Andy Short in their National One campaign this season.

The dual registration agreement means they can still play for the Warriors if they are required by their parent club.

Kvesic, 18, is a back row forward who has led the England under-18 team after coming through the Worcester academy.

Short, 19, is a tall centre who is expected to move on to under-20 honours alongside Kvesic this season.

"We give talented young players the freedom to enjoy exciting, entertaining and high-scoring rugby," said Stourbridge chairman Dick Jeavons-Fellows.

"Both of these players have the quality and ambition to make an impact in our squad and prove to the England selectors that they deserve to go further."

Former Worcester players Tony Windo and Thimus Delport will be in charge of coaching the duo during their time at Stourton Park.
